Vanadium

print
Vanadium Vanadium is the 23rd chemical element on the Periodic Table of Elements and symbolized by the letter 'V'. Vanadium is not found unbound in nature; but is instead found in more complex compounds such as emeralds.

Along with several other compounds such as Beryllium, Chromium, and Iron, Vanadium is responsible for giving the mineral its characteristic green color, and specific variations in the qualities can determine the specific shade of green, such as the pale green colors found in India and Australia on one end of the spectrum, to the deeper, sometimes blueish-green gemstones found in Colombia.
